Happening and Happy Birthday

Change is good, were told, keeps us on our toes.
A fresh breeze thrown to us through life
keeps us on our toes
fully alive until we die.      Joan Oliver

Happy Birthday to my son

Remember well
your grandmother bringing me home on a warm April morning
in her old car.
New one sitting in our drive
but dad had a busy day
so my mom brought me home.

a few memories

thank you for having car serviced yesterday and taking Callie for Rabbi shot...

love, mama

I love the memory of first bringing your son home. The quote at the beginning is very powerful as well. Don't we really want that: to be fully alive for all of life? Wonderful post!

I too love the quote, which very much resonates with me at this time. Hearts and smiles all around! :-)
